New Belgium Old Cherry

Had a New Belgium Old Cherry tonight.  Had very high hopes going in, to be honest.  I was dissappointed.  After having the likes of Kasteel Rouge or even Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat, I think I have potentially unrealistic expectations for the cherry beer genre. 

I believe the only way you can get this beer right now is in their Folly Pack, but to be honest, I am not sad.

The beer was very blah.  Smelled of cherry, has cherry on the label, but just fell short of giving me a good chery flavor.  Very mild and does not blend well.  Feels like the underlying beer is potentially Fat Tire, and then they threw in a dash of cherry for good measure.  Doesn’t feel like it was truly brewed with cherry flavored goodness in mind.
